Week 72: Hooray for Fall Weather!

Hello! This is the first week that has actually felt like fall! We've been super busy and enjoying the cooler weather! Here are some highlights of the week. Monday we spent the day with Sister Martin and watched Saturday's Warrior which was so much fun!  We'd never heard of or seen the movie, and we got special permission to watch it and it was seriously so fun!  Then we went out teaching with Sister Martin after p-day, and we visited a less active brother who we usually visit once a week.  We are seeing a lot of progress with him, so that has been awesome!  Afterward we visited a new investigator that we had tracted into last week, Gary, and we went over the first lesson with him!  Haha, I don't know if it’s Georgia or what, but the members we bring out for visits are SO bold- in the best way possible! Gary really responded positively to it.  He is at a pretty low place in his life and the gospel is exactly what he needs! He said the most heartfelt and sincere prayer I think I have ever heard at the end of the lesson, and we were all crying! I never cry so that says a lot! 

We had Zone Training with just our zone on Tuesday, and the ZL's and STL's did some fun training activities with us.  It was great to see a lot of missionaries that I haven't seen in a long time!  After the training meeting we taught Skye.  She was a referral we got a couple of weeks ago from missionaries in Alaska.  She was taught all the lessons in Alaska and is working toward baptism, and we are really excited for her! She is YSA age, but will be coming to our ward because it is so much closer.  Wednesday we went out again with Sister Martin, (she is seriously like our best friend here).  We taught with her all day and she fed us lunch and dinner! The coolest lesson we had was with a new investigator we've been teaching named Shamanda.  She seems to have such a sincere desire to find the truth. When we originally found her, I felt so strongly that we should knock on her door.  It has been so cool to see her progress! We had Bible Study again this week and quite a few more people were there, and Gayla came which was awesome! She is going to be rebaptized in November and we are so excited for her! 

We have a new investigator who is this cute, little, old Vietnamese man who we met a while back, but have just been able to start teaching! He doesn't speak great English, but the Spirit was definitely there and it was neat to see how Christ is such a big part of his life! It is really cool to be able to meet so many different types of people with so many different backgrounds.  We went on exchanges to Thomaston on Friday and spent the night there and came back on Saturday.  Exchanges went well - I've known Sister McKee my entire mission, so it was fun to spend the day working with her! She goes home just before I do in November.  I’m running out of time, but thank you so much for all of your prayers and support! Love you both so much!  Sister Hunter
